All Daily College Tours and Big Fridays will take place in the Swearingen Engineering Center, 301 Main Street, Columbia, SC 29208 (Google Maps).

Daily Tour check-in and Big Friday check-in takes place in the Swearingen Center lobby.

There may be limited parking available, especially during the middle of the day. Please allow ample time to find a parking spot. There are two parking options:

  • There are metered parking spots along the Main Street side of the Swearingen Center. Visitors are responsible for paying the meters.
  • There is parking available in the Horizon Garage, at 519 Main Street. You can obtain a parking pass to exit the garage once you arrive to Swearingen.
  • NOTE: Do not park in any parking lot designated Faculty/Staff or Student only. You will very likely be ticketed for parking there without a decal.
